Effective July 1, the Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife was renamed the United States Fish and Wildlife Service by an act of Congress. "Our primary mission as reflected in our new name concerns the welfare of America's fish and wildlife resources". Greenwalt said.

Critically low water levels which are causing muskrats to move, as well as good harvests during the last two seasons, has reduced the rat population significantly. Population fluctuations must be reckoned with for refuge management purposes Womble said.

The Federal Environmental Pesticide Control Act of 1972 requires the certification of "restricted use" pesticide applicators to be fully underway by .the fall of 1976. The law defines "restricted use" as those pesticides requiring handling instructions in addition to what's on .the label. Use of such pesticides may have a n adverse influence on the environment or may injure the applicator, even when applied in accordance with labeled directions. The county extension director anticipates approximately 5 to 10% of currently registered insecticides and 2 to 5% of currently registered herbicides to probably be classified as "restricted". The certification program I will allow continued use of! certain pesticides that might otherwise be banned because of potential danger to people or the environment, he says. Basically, .there will be two types of certification, private and commercial.
